At Derby Cathedral we want to make sure we deliver a welcoming and enjoyable experience for all our visitors. The majority of the building is accessible for wheelchair and mobility scooter users alike. Following a recent Accessibility Audit, the Cathedral is working on making further improvements to ensure that all areas are accessible.

Our Ministry of Welcome team are on hand to provide assistance.

Please see below for full information about resources and facilities in various areas for visitors with disabilities or additional access needs.
